Murray advances to quarters with easy win at Paris Masters

PARIS — Second-seeded Andy Murray reached the quarterfinals of the Paris Masters on Thursday after beating David Goffin in straight sets.

WHERE IN THE WORLD ... ?

Murray lost just eight points on his serve and broke the 16th-seeded Belgian five times as he cruised to a 6-1, 6-0 win.

The pair are expected to face each other again later this month in the Davis Cup final between Britain and Belgium in Gent.

The tie will be contested on a difference surface, after the hosts opted for clay.

Murray next faces either Frenchman Richard Gasquet or sixth-seeded Kei Nishikori of Japan.
